JAYTON — The Hermleigh Cardinals opened the 2019 football season last week by traveling to Jayton for their first scrimmage of the season.
Hermleigh began the scrimmage on defense against Jayton and allowed only one score in 10 plays. In their first series on offense, the Cardinals connected on two long touchdown passes against the Jaybirds. The Hermleigh defense continued to play well throughout the scrimmage, limiting Newcastle and Knox City offensively while the Cardinal offense continued to try and find some chemistry with a young core of skill players.
The Cardinals will be at home this week as they host Westbrook in the final scrimmage of the year on Friday at 6pm.
